Twisted Spoke on Versus. Contador, clenbuterol and divine intervention.
Twisted Spoke began 18 months ago and in our first four weeks of existence we had a grand total of eight readers. Things did improve — we had over 52,000 visits during the TDF.
This year we covered the Tour of California and Tour of France for CycleSport Magazine and interviewed Tyler Farrar for the first issue of Joe Parkin’s Paved Magazine. It’s been an honor and a thrill.
Now we here at Twisted Spoke World Corporate Headquarters are goose-bumped to announce we’ll be writing a weekly post for Versus from here on out– or until they grow weary of our sophomoric nonsense.
Our first post out the gate is on –what else — Alberto’s hot water problem. Here are the first two appetizer paragraphs, the rest of the meal is at Versus and no, we are not serving any Spanish meat due to concerns over contamination.
*Special note: We asked Versus not to correct our typos so regular Twisted Spoke readers feel at right at home.
Andy Schleck owes me a boatload of money.
That’s the first nano-synapse thought I had when the news exploded that Alberto Contador had tested positive for clenbuterol on the second rest day at the Tour de France.
Yes, Andy, cough up the big bucks and I don’t particularly care if it’s a slice of the Saxo Bank money or drawn on the account of your new mystery team Luxembourg account. Euros, dollars, it’s all good.
